I have always felt especially creative this time of year, between making handmade Christmas cards for friends and family, baking up some special goodies with my kids, and sewing up those secret gifts to open on Christmas morning. I have also noticed, though, that the days in December fly by twice as fast as the rest of the year! So in case you missed anything in the whirlwind of this past week, here's all that's been happening here at CKC:
On Monday we released Nicole's Party Dress in both girl and tween sizes! Nicole's pattern features a fitted bodice with three sleeve options, a gorgeous button-down back, an attached sash, a built-in pettiskirt, and that adorable split-front skirt. We have simplified the design for this style of dress and you are going to LOVE how it turns out the very first time! Be sure to look in our photo gallery on the website to see all the amazing dresses our testers made with just one pattern!
On Wednesday we released three new doll patterns! First is Maggie's with it's unique color block design. The dress has Velcro at the shoulders to make it easier for kids to dress their dollies. Next is Elliette's Apron Skirt. Pair it with a long sleeve shirt, leggings, and ankle boots for a stylish winter outfit! Third is Merideth's Center Ruffle peasant dress/top. Such an easy, fast outfit to sew and such a cute style!
Yesterday we released Tween Porter's Button Up Shirt and Tween Josh's Knit Pajama Set! Just like the smaller boy sizes, these two patterns have lots of options and are sure to please! Both are perfect for the upcoming holidays (think fun prints) and beyond! They both include sizes 7/8 to 15/16 and are on sale for 30% off!
